Infected by E. Choli Bacteria

Be careful for someone who work with contact regularly with waste, especially with domestic waste, because this bacteria usually exist on this area. Escheriachia choli, salmonella and campylobacter are exist on this waste, and if infected to human body can cause illness.

Sometimes attributed to "food poisoning" or called, "stomach flu", gastroenteritis pertains to the irritation and inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract which consists of the stomach and the intestines. Because this is usually caused by infections, its severity can be related to your ability to combat infection. Some people tend to recover from this illness faster than others. Also, since people who experience this ailment tend to excrete a lot of fluids either through vomiting or loose bowel movement, there is a danger of losing electrolytes and becoming prone to dehydration which is a life-threatening illness.

The most common causes of gastroenteritis is the presence of viruses and bacteria. Both may enter your body from the food you eat or contact with other people who have the illness. Also, these infectious agents can be caused by something in your body if you have an abnormal condition. This can happen when you drink antacids or any medication that can alter the acidity of your stomach.

Escherichia coli, also known as Traveler's diarrhea, can come from unclean food and water. Salmonella, on the other hand, is more dangerous because it causes typhoid fever. It can be acquired from holding poultry or reptiles that have a lot of germs. Campylobacter can enter your body through undercooked meat and un-pasteurized milk.

When the gastroenteritis is caused by a virus, then it will only take 1 to 2 days to recover from it. 30 to 40% of the viral cases of gastroenteritis usually involve children. Because of the close contact between children in daycare and pre-schools, the spread of this virus can be quite fast. The common viruses that cause gastroenteritis are: adenoviruses, rotaviruses, calciviruses, astroviruses and norvirus.

Other causes of gastroenteritis are parasites and protozoan’s. These organisms may enter your body by drinking contaminated water. Toxins that can be found in sea food, heavy metals and medications can also be te cause of gastroenteritis.

A person suffering from gastroenteritis commonly experiences a low grade fever that is accompanied by nausea with or without vomiting and mild to moderate diahrrea which means that the patient will release two to four loose stools per day. The patient will also experience some cramps and bloating. These symptoms can be alleviated by rest and the replenishment of fluids.

Unfortunately, gastroenteritis can also be accompanied by serious symptoms that need medical attention. One of them is having a fever that is higher than 101 degrees Farenheit or 38 degree C. This makes monitoring the patient's temperature very important. Other symptoms that require medical care are spots of blood in the vomit or stool, swelling or pain in the right lower part of the abdomen and dehydration which can be monitored by knowing the frequency of the patient’s urination.

To someone who indicate infected by this bacteria better consult to doctor and discuss precisely about the illness in order the doctor can give an exact advise and take the right action for your diseases.
